“Africa Rugby has unanimously accepted Uganda’s bid to host the 2024 and 2025 Editions of Rugby Africa Cup at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.”

Said Ogwang before adding,

“Note that the current renovations at Namboole have taken care of several other sports disciplines, including Rugby and I am glad to report that we are ready to start hosting both local and international games.”

“To ensure readiness, this morning I inspected the Rugby playing field at Namboole, together with the President of Uganda Rugby Union, Kayangwe Godwin. Thank you for pushing this bid.” Said Ogwang

The tournament was previously called the Africa Cup before it was renamed the Rugby Africa Cup in November 2019.
